Princess and the Pauper, The
"NICKY NOME SAVES DAY BY RESCUE OF THE PAUPER, LADEN WITH TREASURE, ON THE WAY BACK TO THE PRINCESS FROM THE VALLEY OF JEWELS, USING THE MAGIC CARPET, WHICH IS TRANSFORMED INTO A NEW AUTOMOBILE."
Ken Smith sez: Another in the stunning "Nicky Nome" series of Technicolor Chevrolet cartoons (see A Coach For Cinderella). In this one, a doltish king promises the hand of his lovely daughter to the wealthiest man in the land. Nobody is richer than sleazy "Ali Kazam," but a more deserving "pauper boy" gets the girl when Nicky whisks him away to the Valley of Jewels on a magic carpet that turns into a you-know-what. Beautifully animated and scored; incredibly rich colors.
